This was a piece I made that I just couldn't figure out how I wanted to do the glazing. After having it be in the way for over a year Susan gave me an ultimatum: "Either you do something with it in six months or it's mine to mess up."

Then she gave me a second six-months grace period: "Either you do something with it in six months or I'm going to spray paint it." Obviously I couldn't get my act together. Petya looks terrific now and she has a sister that you'll see in a few days.

In the photo below you can see Petra in the background, prior to be attacked. Susan's a maniac with spray paint. She hates wearing the respirator mask (it's hotter than hell and it messes up her glasses) but it totally elimintes the paint smell so she uses it faithfully.

Wow, I really like the stencilling Susan....and the nose stripes. Your two styles have come together perfectly. Next time don't extend the 6 months grace:-)
Just fire away. Those respirator masks are the bane of my life too.

I, for one, am thrilled that she got it with her spray painting - it looks really incredible!
